Food Force is a game by the UN World Food Programme. The idea behind making the game is to make children aware of what hunger is and how to fight it. This is a indeed a noble concept and we salute the idea at CWF by hosting this little gem of an educational game.
The game takes part on a small island off of India's coast where grass and other produce once grew in lush amounts but is now hit by yet another year of drought and famine. Your job is of course to get the help they need there, and then make it count.
This is done by a series of minigames, where you dose the different ingredients for the food you are going to drop, you scout the areas to figure out where best to drop the food, and also you take it to the delivery points by trucks, but beware of rebels, landmines and blowouts.
After you got the food there you need to make sure it will not only help the inhabitants this year, but will keep helping them year after year, so they can once again support themselves in the long run.
All of this makes for an entertaining game with lots of info about the work done by the UN World Food Programme.
The game shifts between computer-generated graphics and real live footage from areas of hunger.
